Description

This book offers a masterful introduction to the cell biology that you need to know! This critically acclaimed text offers you a modern and unique approach to the study of cell biology. It emphasises that cellular structure, function, and dysfunction ultimately result from specific macromolecular interactions. You'll progress from an explanation of the "hardware" of molecules and cells to an understanding of how these structures function in the organism in both healthy and diseased states. The outstanding artwork helps you to better visualise molecular structures.show more

Review quote

-This book contains everything you want to know and more about cells. Each section covers a topic by beginning with the basic molecules and background principles and then continuing up to how these give full physiological function.It is well designed because it contains lots of detail on each subject without drowning out key information for understanding. There are separate boxes on most pages, containing key principles and helpful summary tables alongside many excellent diagrams and research figures. It has been updated from the first edition with the inclusion of the latest research findings and there has also been an effort made to reduce jargon. I would recommend this book for a person wanting to conduct research who needs solid baseline knowledge of cell biology.-Medical Student, Leicester Medical School, UKshow more
